Description of the Land

General Description

The AVA Ranch is located on the eastern flank of the Chiricahua Mountains in Cochise County, Arizona. The property lies at the mouth of Cave Creek Canyon, a perennial stream that flows eastward from the Chiricahua Mountains into the San Simon Valley. The small community of Portal is adjacent to the propertys south boundary.

Cave Creek Canyon is an internationally known area due to the abundance of bird species that live and migrate through the lush riparian canyon. Over 300 types of birds have been recorded here. The biology of the region is unique due to the Chiricahua Mountains location between the Rocky Mountains in the United States and the Sierra Madre Mountains in Mexico. The American Museum of Natural Historys Southwestern Research Station is located in Cave Creek Canyon and provides lodging for many visiting scientists conducting research in the area.

This area is also known for the quality and clarity of the night sky. Astronomers from throughout the world come here to observe the heavens. The remote location, low light pollution and low humidity provide an unparalleled opportunity to enjoy many astronomical sights. Arizona Sky Village, a subdivision developed exclusively for astronomy, is located here.

The AVA Ranch consists of:

The three other homes are constructed of adobe and have been used as guest/labor houses. There is a large two story stone barn on the ranch that could be used for a variety of purposes.
